I think there is some truth to this.
I went to a muslim majority higher sec school. the boys were no different than boys from other schools i went to. ogling at girls, swearing, and some of the older ones were already into smoking, bunking classes for movies etc. 5 times a day prayer was mandatory and nobody missed it, although maybe only 10% were really pious and all. a few were already 'hafiz' (one who has memorized the quran) and nobody ate pork. a lot of peer pressure on prayer and pork. prayer they can fake but pork is the last barrier i guess.
in massa, had a paki colleague who would drink beer now and then in office parties, pass adult jokes, visits tit.ty bars, the usual looking at ass when women walk past,..but never pork.
there was another paki friend- who went completely native in massa. loves pepperoni pizza and all. completely unislamic in the traditional sense, but very 'dharmic' in his outlook towards life and believes in karma and rebirth etc.
